British guests embarrass Chris Matthews, correct his claim that Tony Blair was closer to Clinton than Bush

by editor on April 27, 2011

Is there anything better than seeing Chris Matthews embarrassed on national television? OK, sure, seeing Keith Olbermann pantsed by midgets might be funnier, but seeing Chris Matthews embarrassed runs a close second.

Chris hosted four British journalists this weekend and in an effort to demean George W. Bush, made the ludicrous claim that former Prime Minister Tony Blair “was much closer emotionally and politically to Bill Clinton.”

Surely, Matthews never expected them to unanimously disagree. Liberal blogger Andrew Sullivan shook his head no. Gillian Tett of the Financial Times did the same. Katty Kay of the BBC said, “No.” Matt Frei said, “Wrong.”

Kay and Frei didn’t stop there.

Watch the video clip. You’ll love Matthews’ pathetic closing line.

“Dammit, I told you to only book people for my show that nod their head while I rant and rave and spit all over the camera.”

I’m surprised and disappointed that Chris Matthew’s ratings aren’t lower than they are!

Not much in this world sends as great a tingle up my leg than to know Chrissy Matthews is disappointed. He’s one of my favorite left-wing barometers.

That’s what Chrissy gets for thinking!
